He leído con atención todo el interesante hilo.
Quiero adquirir un teleconvertidor, preferiblemente 2x, que me funcione con una Sony slt58 y objetivo Tamron SP 70-300 lo mejor posible y como preferente, también un sony 50mm 1.4 y un 18-55 de sony, el ded kit.
Mi duda está en si el Kenko teleplus 300, que es el que parece recomendado para Tamron SP, funciona también con los otros objetivos o es dedicado.
También, si el teleplus MC7 2x de Kenko es más versátil y qué diferencia hay entre los que se denominan MX y los alfa o A AF. Ambos son aparentemente iguales y de 8 pines. No encuentro muchos con la referencia DGX que parece que es la recomendada.
Muchas gracias


I haven't got a translator on my phone , so I can't understand the question .

Can you repost this in English please , as this is predominantly English speaking forum ?
I'm sure to many members here , English us a second language , those that don't speak English copy and paste the question into a translator , and copy and paste the results here .

I'm sure we can help you .   

P S , welcome to the forum .

Welcome to Dyxum, Pablo! Bienvenida al Dyxum (that is correct Spanish?)
Most here do not speak Spanish (well) but Google Translate to the rescue:

Thanks a lot
The DGX is the latest version, but AFAIK optical they are the same as the Tamron SP and Kenko Teleplus 300 - the difference is in the coatings. They also work with different lenses. The MC7's should be a lesser converter, but some have good experience with these as well.

Somebody with more knowledge will hopefully join in.

It might well be 2021 , but I probably belong in 1921 !

I'm doing well if I can even answer the blasted smartphone when it rings !
What's wrong with having buttons ?

Anyway , my brain still hurts after setting up the menu on my new camera .

MC7 means multi-coated 7-element. The cheaper/smaller 2X Tele Plus models are MC4 -- 4 element designs. The MC7 are better optically.

The Tele Plus DGX models will work with AF motors in lenses (SSM, SAM, USD, HSM, etc.) The DG models don't have chips which generally means AF doesn't work with them. The earlier Tele Plus models may or may not have chips. The chipped ones generally work well with screw-driven lenses.

Kenko's chips don't fully work with SSM II lenses/bodies. The focal length and apertures of those lenses won't get corrected, but the lenses focus fine. The uncorrected focal length makes Steady Shot and ADI less effective.

I preferred Kenko's coatings to Tamron's. Tamron seems to be the only company that did their own coatings on these.

The Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 converters are designed to reduce vignetting (dark corners on full frame) with wide aperture ("fast") supertelelenses like 300mm f 2.8. They will work on the same lenses as the other Kenko teleconverters. If you have a camera with an APS-C size sensor (like A58), there is no benefit to use the Pro 300 over a similar "non-Pro 300" Kenko teleconverter, but no real drawback either.

Thank you all very much for the welcome and the answers.
I think I will try a Kenco Alfa AF MX7. There is a greater offer.

As I thought I read at some point in the thread, the teleplus 300 PRO are more thought for the Tamron SP line and in the introduction it is given to understand that they are of a dedicated type. That scares me a little as to how well it works with other lenses.

As it seemed to me to understand in the thread, the models without a chip do work with AF, what they do not provide is the correct EXIF ​​information because they interpret that the TC is the same lens. That is, the camera does not identify that it has a CT and although the AF can be lazier, it usually works up to exceeding F8 or F11.

In teleplus 300 I find two similar models, but not the same.
The first one is this.

1 Teleplus 300


And the second is this, which as can be seen is shorter.
2 teleplus 300


In the MX7 model I find the same one marked as alpha, but while one specifies that it is DG (1), the other says that it is DGX (2).



1 DG

2 DGX

Please look again ;-)
They are exactly the same (but one is without lens caps).

you're right, but it had me confused. I am ignorant about this.
I still don't know if the 300 Pro or the MC7 is a better option

You may go for the cheapest option of these (the MC7).
On A58 there is no benefit from a Pro 300.
